Re: Kit lenses or negotiate?

To agree with some others here, I have heard much better things about the optical quality of the 55-300 compared to the 55-200. Also, that extra range is very important for many applications (depending on what you're using it for), but I know I couldn't get by with 200 (and often want 400+). I think it's worth some extra money to upgrade to the 55-300, which I think is a lens you would keep longer, so getting it up front might save money in the long run.

As someone else said, I think the 18-135, a 35mm or 50mm prime, and the 55-300 is a great starting kit that will cover 99% of most amateurs' needs.
